Clean Benches


#1

Sigh…it doesn�t really matter very much what the color of my
bench is. I don�t see much of the surface anyway. I know that
it�s nicer to work on a neat bench but I just can�t seem to
control the clutter. I suppose that could be a New Year�s
resolution but I know I wouldn�t even get started because I would
have to clean the thing off first. Sigh!

Marilyn…Your message is the most meaningfil one in all
my time with the Orchid network !!!

I FOUND A SOUL MATE. I think I love you Marilyn.

Every now and then I spend an hour clearing up my benches and
surrounding areas.

What a waste of time.

I keep telling myself to clean up at the end of each day and put
every tool back where it belongs and every piece of work in the
respective box.

Does it work I hear you say.

No it doesn`t.

Merry Holidays all, I’ve been lurking for a while, you all sound
like a great bunch. as for the clean bench problem, my husband
thought I was the only clutter lover in the world! (it is, after
all, creative clutter) Thanks for all the help you’ve given me, &
the laughs! ;-))))) Susan K. @susan_kunz

I’ve really gotten a kick out of all these 'clean workbench’
posts. Usually I just transfer everything into Larry’s file for
him, but haven’t been able to resist the workbench posts. I’m a
"bead artist" so I never intended to post to your list, but
everytime I go into my bead room I have to laugh — all
artistic, creative people must have the same kind of benches! Best
wishes to you all, Judy in Alaska

My entire living room, workroom, and office is covered in beads,
wire, waxes, etc. etc. and my husband hates it. He does all
sales and creates his very own version of “finished” mess as
opposed to my “raw” mess, but apparently that’s different.

Keep messing, it means your creative side is working.

Disorganization: is merely the sign of a very healthy individual
trying to do more in a shorter period of time that those lazy,
obvsessively tidy types who can think of nothing better to do
that straighten objects in drawers and stuff like that which only
feeds on their own egos and makes them think they’re better than
those of us who are truly gifted.

Lester,

Aren’t you talking about the Queen of Organization herself? Ms.
Martha Stewart? –

Art is an absolute mistress; she will not be coquetted with or slighted;
she requires the most entire self-devotion, and she repays with grand
triumphs.
